Mysore style practice is the
self-paced, traditional forum and cornerstone for studying Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.
We offer it as we were taught by Sri. K Pattabhi Jois and Richard Freeman. No experience with the series is necessary and beginning students are always welcome.
Our approach to the practice is inviting and personalized. Practitioners arrive anytime during the class period and practice for as little or as long as they like, but are encouraged to build endurance so that a one to two hour sequence becomes routine. The teacher moves around the room and practitioners are supported by the teacher individually. Beginners and those with a therapeutic self-practice welcome. If you are a new student, please check in with the teacher upon arrival.

Traditionally, Mysore-style Ashtanga is not practiced on full and new moons, which are considered inauspicious days on which to engage in strenuous practice.
Anthea Grimason, Cheryl Kapchan, Elaine Oyang and Nicole Thompson regularly sub for the Mysore program. Catherine Shaddix is on sabbatical for school.
2017 Mysore Moon Days
At The Mindful Body, we observe the full and new moon days as rest days, where no formal practice is offered. Practitioners are encouraged to use this time for reflection and study.
*We will still hold Friday Led Ashtanga, when it falls on a Moon Day.
